Wasn't Ragusa an old name for Dubrovnik?

Yes. Officially still exists in Italian but nobody uses it anymore.

I know that with an Italian B driving license you can ride a 125 only within Italy and without carrying a passenger. You should check if you have the same limitation with your Polish license.

It's a question of country where you are. In Spain I can ride 125 on my polish (European? ) DL even when I couldn't in Poland.

Anyone who knows the status of Croatia's entry in the Schengen family ? I've heard of summer 2015 but I doubt it. Borders need to be strengthen and there is still dispute about Neum..

Summer 2015 is when Croatia can apply to join Schengen, more precisely the government will apply July 1 2015.

That's when the country should be ready to join, but not sure, still many crossings need to be re/built, 3 immigrants transit centers built...

I'm not convinced Croatia will get in so easily. The border with Bosnia is still very, very weak - there's no way that the border in Metkovic can be an acceptable Schengen border, for instance. A green border is one thing, but a whole town with an open Schengen border? No chance. Neum is no problem, the crossing there meets Schengen norms - in fact, I think pretty much every Croatian border crossing is more or less compliant with Schengen rules. T.he only issue might be the crossing at Licko Petrovo Selo, as the check is conducted on Bosnian territory. All the others are (to the best of my knowledge) carried out on Croatian territory

Isn't the President of Croatia a figurehead? As for motorbikes - hasn't it changed all over the EU that you can ride 125cc on a B licence?

What does Schengen got to do with "passport-free travel"? From Roumania I've already travelled many times with only my ID card in EU, but also in Serbia and Croatia back since 2011.

I'm assuming that croatian can do the same in every corner of the EU.

Any EU citizen can visit any EU country with ID only, Schengen or non Schengen.

Certain countries have ID cards which are acceptable as travel documents to certain other countries.

Some countries have no ID cards so the citizens must get a passport. EG Ireland. The UK had an ID card as well as a passport but it was not much use really so very few were given out and then the UK abolished these ID cards a few years ago.

A British person with a British ID card is not guaranteed entry ....to Britain since January 2011.

Thats right. There are some EU countries that does not isue national biometric id cards. And yes I know that some Balkan countries already have their own mini schengen and accepts travel only with their id cards. The only thing I wanted to state id that Croatia's entry to schengen would simply mean an abolishment of the borders so you dont even have to wait at the lines because there may be some travellers that only brought a regular passport to be stamped and scanned. Its like 3-5 minutes per car so a lot of time can be saved

Also remember a national ID card is a luxury thing and not mandatory (edit: partly optional and mandatory). It can be quite pricey in some countries. But again, its smarter to have a credit card than a bulky passport.

Only about 300 km longer when going from Zagreb, maybe even less from Central Europe.
